When you have kids, the next best thing instead of hitting bars and clubs is a Sheep Farm. Honestly, this place is a family gem! I have not been to this place before. My younger brother, his wife and our little niece took us there right after we visited Art In Paradise. We didn’t intend to make it a long day as we did initially wanted to go the next day, but we didn’t think the sky would hold out for us. The forecast predicted heavy rain and Boy! – when it is a heavy rain here – it is a serious barrage! Beside, going to the sheep farm late in the evening gives us some cool time compared to the day heat of upto 40°C!
We arrived around 5:30pm. Pattaya Sheep Farm open everyday from 9am to 7pm. This gives us plenty of time to stroll about the place. The entrance fee was music to my pocket: 50 Baht per person (£1) and kids under 110cm enter FREE!!
As we entered, Ethan immediately jumped onto all of the giant vegetables that he can finds; and Evelyn hopped on the pink pick up truck pretend playing farmers with Daddy.
Once, they have exhausted themselves, we went to a little pen which had rabbits, hamsters and tortoises running about freely. Yes, you have herd it right tortoise can run too and they are pretty fast too! Fresh vegetables packet are available for you to feed the animals for only 20 Bhat per packet, (50 pence). Ethan was a little nervous at first, but after a few demonstration from Uncle – he soon was brave enough to feed the animals all by himself. That’s my boy! Evelyn on the other hand was a little too busy watching the hamsters around under and between her feet! Bless her!
When the packets were empty, we moved on to the Sheep Barn, and bottle-fed some sheep, little lambs; fed some lovely green grass for adults sheep too. Again the kiddos hesitated at first but soon was brave enough and I could say a natural at bottle-feeding them!
Do look after your littlest one though – grass feeding can pull the littlest ones in too close to the sheep stable. Evelyn needed Daddy’s strong muscles with this one.
And what would a farm be without some kind of a ride? The pony rides are at 100 Baht (£2) for 2 rounds. Both Ethan and Evelyn have been up close and personal with horse near where with live back in England before, but I would never dream of them riding on one! It was their own accord that they wanted to do the rides and so I let them. Their smiles were a pair of sunshine.
Before closing time, we had the pleasure of petting the little piglets at the Sheep House. Ethan was also very excited by the herding of all of the sheep taken into the house from their day stables.
And yes, amongst other amazing sculptures and playground artifacts there is also an ironman sheep too! 😉
We have not been sponsored for this post, but we have had such a lovely time and I thought I’ll share it with you. This place has definitely receives the ‘Ethan & Evelyn’ seal of approval for a family-friendly attraction. It is a must-go if you are visiting Pattaya with the kids!
There is also a Steak House, where kids below the height of 110cm eats FREE for every adult entry ordered, plus you would received an 10% off for it with your entrance ticket to the farm. Such a bonus! But we felt the kids were too tired after a very long day and it was time to relax at the poolside back at our hotel.
